First a little background info: I got a 90 CRX given to me: bare shell, stripped, poor body work, wiring hacked, and just generally a mess. I purchased a 91 Integra LS wrecked in the rear with a b18a1. only problem was that it was an auto. wanting to convert to manual, i purchased a trans on ebay, long story short had a hole in the case. had a shop weld it up and had a transmission guy go through the tranny, everything looked good. I am attempting to use the fronts suspension/axles/brakes etc. off of the integra. I read that you have to use a halfshaft that matches the transmission. not thinking the ebay listing for my trans could be incorrect, I purchased a b18 M/T half shaft. i say this because i was told when trying to use a b16 halfshaft with a b18 transmission there are some lining up issues. While putting in the transmission, we had a difficult time getting the left side motor mount to line up. but finally after some adjusting, got everything to bolt up. I just finished cleaning up and painting all the Teg suspension, and got it all installed. went to install the half shaft, and it slides in without a problem, but where the plate on the end goes to bolt up, nothing lines up. in fact i cant even get the bracket to sit flush against the engine. since then i have purchased 2 more half shafts to make sure it wasnt a b16/b18 issue, (one b16 and one b18) and neither of them work either any help or ideas?
